The Petit Tour

After leaving Fredericia, Dr Whatson and SARDIS took Polly Line on a (western) world tour to :

AMSTERDAM





Where they went for a stroll under the trees by one of the many canals.



THE ALPS,
where they had dinner at the Hotel Franzen Resturant





The USA and back in time to CAPE CANAVERAL and the launching of a space shuttle.



Hmm, more trees than I remember...





10-9-8-7-6


5-4-3-2-1 was heard while the smoke thickened.

After seeing the space shuttle well off they went to see MOUNT RUSHMORE and the presidents, Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln. Polly Line suddenly felt very small.




On Polly Line's request they then visited the Nordic countries

SWEDEN

And the GÖTA KANAL




But where are they now?



Oh DENMARK, in what appears to be Nyhavn in COPENHAGEN





Where they also visited Amalienborg Palace, the home of the Danish Royal Family.



And then off to NORWAY, or BERGEN to be more precise.





Isn't that Sognekongen? That boat's northbound from Bergen. Hmm...



Those local blockheads don't seem to suspect anything though.

Pubdoll said...

Norway cool?
Actually it's quite hot today.

Normally calling someone a 'blockhead' would be so rude - but you've managed to find a place where it's totally appropriate ;)

Quite a whirlwind tour these two are having!

Great photos and commentary from their accompanying travel reporter!

Pubdoll said...

Thank you very much Norma!
I thought of calling this post "Around the world in 8 hours", which was the time we spent in Legoland.

And people from Bergen don't mind being called names, in their opinion all publicity is good publicity :-)
(My husband is from Bergen, so he should know)

These types of scenes are your trademark, I think! I love when you do this. You always get the angles just right, talented lady!! PLEASE tell me it's true you are coming to New York in October...!!! Let's email about getting together. :)

Mini Dork said...

Incredible photos! So much fun. I love the story of their adventures. Too much fun!

Pubdoll said...

Thanks callsmall, but I really don't get the angles right every time, I just take a lot of pictures :-)

But I was lucky with te Mt. Rushmore photo, it was the only one I took and I was alone at the time, so I held the dolls with my left hand and took the photo with my right hand.

And I have just e-mailed you, you know how it is, Autumn just can't come soon enough! :-)

Pubdoll said...

Thanks Mini Dork!
Too much fun, eh? I'll try to keep it down next time :-)

Natalie said...

lovely pictures!
sounds like the had a wonderful time! so much to see too :-)

Pubdoll said...

Thanks Natalie, it was a great day in Legoland and much much more I wasn't able to get good pictures of as well. I was especially sorry that the Eastern section was difficult to photograph.

Ahhhhhhhh! I am so happy to hear that you are travelling to NY , Helene!!! After that, the Far East, ok? :):) Flight time is about the same ..haha ! :)You will love it, I did! Unforgettable trip.

That's Legoland eh? I just love those trees. Can't be lego bricks :). Your commentary is so fun :). I wonder how you are doing your NY trip with Dr Whatson though :)

The other day I saw on BBC a show about man and toys and how this guy commissioned someone to build him a real life Lego house with lego furniture which he of course could not use. It was a typical Lego house but huge in a vineyard. None of the furniture could be used, they all broke into pieces when he so much as sat on it..lol. Of course, I thought of you :). An art appraisal estimated the value of the house to be 50k pounds! :)

Pubdoll said...

Thanks Sans, yes, NY here I come :-) I'm a bit worried about the long distance flight, but we can think of it as a rehearsal for an Asian tour :-) And I did hear rumours Dr Whatson is heading the same way, I'm curious to see what he will be up to when he's there :-)

And yes, it's Legoland, but with real life trees. I had a real problem taking many of these photos beacuse there were almost always small rows of bushes and trees between us and the legolandscape. So I had to lean forward as far as I could to get the dolls placed in the scenes and then to take the photos of them in it.

Thank you very much for letting me know about the lego house! How fantastic, I must google it to see it for myself!

Skal si de to har opplevd mye! Ser ut som de har hatt en flott tur!

Pubdoll said...

Takk Anne Mari, tror nok de hadde en veldig fin tur, og dette var bare de stedene jeg fikk sneket meg med og tatt bilde av dem :-)

Rebecca said...

Wow, this is even more of a whirlwind tour than one of those 5 countries in 7 days bus tours! But probably much more comfortable, and roomy, in the SARDIS! The buildings are amazing, and I love the vehicles and the blockheads on the harbour in Bergen!!
A trip to NY sounds great - even though I don't expect you'll be travelling in such luxury as Dr Whatson and Polly Line! How long will it take you to fly there? Flying back from Sydney to Darwin (direct) took me 4 hrs 40 mins - going via Brisbane etc is longer!! And that's just within Australia, never mind getting here in the first place :-(

Pubdoll said...

Thanks Rebecca, and this was only from the countries where I got decent pictures :-) I love Legoland, it's amazing how real the houses look! And of course they had to go to Bergen with Dårlig Ulv Stranden in Pete's world just 50 miles away :-)
By the way, I found this small but interesting wiki page about it here:
http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/D%C3%A5rlig_Ulv_Stranden

From Oslo to NY is about 10-11 hours, but that is because we have to take a detour via Stockholm or Copenhagen. From Stockholm it takes about 8.5 hours. I must admit I don't look forward to that part of the trip, but it will be great to see NY and to meet callsmall! Travelling in the SARDIS would be perfect if I could only squeeze myself through the door, but I will be satisfied with enough space for the feet and a film to watch :-)

Hi, a great site and a truly heart-rending story. Best, Werner
